In today’s reading one of the things that struck me was during Jesus’ arrest, when a disciples cut the ear off one of the men in the crowd and Jesus healed the man. He did this in front of all the men in the crowd. You would think these men would recognize who Jesus was based on this alone, but they still proceeded to arrest Him. This was not an accident and was done to fulfill God’s ultimate plan. God’s will does not always lead down the easy path, but it is still perfect. We must trust His will and know His plan has a purpose that impacts the entire Kingdom, not just our personal existence.
